This recording is epic!!
Reviewer: 10jed - favoritefavoritefavorite - July 14, 2010
Subject: Definitely not 12/31
Another data point - in this rehearsal they are still working out the verse meter and are playing it at straight 4/4. When they first performed this on 12/4/69 they had already started dropping the beat in the verse (substituting a measure of 3/4 after "Don't you worry any more" and again after "Danger at your door". This has to precede it by probably several weeks at least.

Subject: rh confirms
mr. hunter confirms on deadnet central that it is indeed him on the trumpet solo. He said the tape was originally stolen at a party he had and was labeled "original friend of the devil."

Subject: 12-31 Placeholder dates
Check out other years, 12-31 is the place holder date for unknowns and/or disputed.
Reviewer: puhari pete - favorite - July 12, 2006
Subject: The date on this is incorrect
While these may be valid, home recordings they could not have occured on this date. I just downloaded a show that has the band on a holiday swing on the east coast. 12-31-69 they were in Boston, MA @ the Tea Party for New Year's & the end of a 3 show run.

Subject: UJB Jam!!!
The UJB Jam here is worth many listens. You can just hear the joy of creation as the calypso-flavored rave-up builds and repeats. Sure, there's some distortion in the sound, but to say it's not enjoyable is a bigger distortion!

cheap mic> portable recorder is right, but the acoustic material is still pretty interesting however the electric material is too distorted to enjoy
